This bow represents home to me. When I was a little kid My grandmother would always cheer me up with cereal or her delicious soups that I would always beg her for. Both my parents are from Mexico and my dad at a very young age illegally crossed the border with my grandfather and my uncle. My parents had a very hard time making enough money to provide for the family so they would always send me to my grandparents. I would always miss my parents very much, but my grandmother knew how to cheer me up by making her delicious menudo’s. She would always give me Menudo in this specific bowl and every time I see this bowl I see myself. I see home.
